    Statistics, data, analytics. Three words that are shaping the future. Three topics in which you will become proficient in this master.

    This master program provides a thorough training in the statistical toolbox behind Data Science. Deep understanding of fundamental statistical methods is emphasized throughout a combination of methodological exposition, computational implementation, and application of methods. Our target is to create self-sufficient data scientists able to tackle any modelling task by applying, modifying/developing, and deploying new data analysis techniques.

    Most of the data science masters focus on applications of methods, i.e. on the how to apply, rather than on the statistical techniques behind them: the how to build. The defining characteristic of this master is that it provides the same weight to both components that define the all-terrain data scientist.

    The master graduates will have the adequate training at the right time for this new exciting market. Additionally, top master students will have the opportunity to enter the PhD program in Statistics.

    │MASTER IN NUMBERS

    • ☛ The job market for data scientists has been rapidly growing in the last years and it is expected to grow even more in the future.
    • IBM projects an increment of 28% of the demand of data scientists by 2020 and reports that a 39% of data scientist positions require a master or a PhD.
